Grrrrr...anyone waiting for the Canadian edition yet? I ordered my DVD and CD from CD Universe awhile back, and they keep pushing the release date back! As of today it says the DVD will be out Dec. 5th, and the CD Jan. 16th! And I don't think they will ship mine until both are ready. I am fuming, why the hold up? I could have gotten them in the States at this rate, or ordered the Aussie/NZ release to watch on my portable DVD player. It plays PAL.

Grrrrr......... Frowner

The sponteneity wasn't there, which was part of the Crowdies make-up. That hit me watching it live for the very first time and since. You just want him to break out, give it the Crowdies all, not just play really really well.

Okay I'm greedy, I want the whole essensce of the Crowdies, not just great music.

Hope you get what I mean.

Glad others here have similar opinions reading through so not all alone here in my thoughts.

Glad in the commentary side of the dvd some of the above mentioned was answered.
Neil, less banter to fit in more songs and didn't think it would go across well with so many people up the back waiting to singalong.

Also amazed at the stories Nick had of Paul, so maybe that was from being the placater (sp?).
Loved mention of the 'death' stares, I've always called them, which means someone made a mistake, he still does it on stage to this date.

Nick had me nearly lose my head off the back of my neck, when talking to Lozza about being intimidating. He was an absolute crackup.

Alot of bite their tongue moments I felt when it came to Paul.
Wish Mark had a better feed into the commentary, had some quite funny comments, that got a bit lost with the timing.

Did Tim only do 2 songs? or did I get caught up with my kids battles at the time? Great to know it was one of Tim and Marie's first dates. What a first date !!

Ahhh the 4 places for a kiss. Throw your arms around me !

Fingers of Love ~ Mark's a legend !

Peter Jones, they love you.

Loved the audio comments in otherwords. Even Neil talking to Sharon about Lorraine and Miller. Very down to earth.

Well that's my bit at the mo. Good to hear the other comments.
This was my email exchange with CD Universe. Not very helpful:

> I received an email from you stating that the Crowded House Farewell to the World CD will not be released until Jan 18 and the DVD will be released on Dec 5. Your website, however, says both items will be out on Dec. 5. At the time I placed my order, both items were to be out on Nov. 28th. Can you please clarify when each item will really be available?
> If the items are to be released weeks apart, I would like to split my order so that they may be shipped upon release date.
> Thanks for your help,
> Adam

Dear Adam,

Thank you for your email. I apologize for the inconvenience. Since stock is
not carried at our location, we rely on our suppliers and other third party
sources for product information. According to the information posted on our
website both items are schedule to release on 12/5/2006.

Please feel free to email me if you need further assistance.

Yup - i asked around on the 21st - i'm a bit freaked out that many of the hmv store clerks didn't know who crowded house was!!!! One guy said, "Is that a band?" Another spent several minutes searching the system for a Farewell to the World dvd by Grounded House!! No that's "crowded" dude... as in... why is it never crowded in this record store anymore?

Anway glad to finally get mine last week. They really did put on an amazing show and played their hearts out!
